We have the perfect recipe to get you excited about cooking for Fido. Mesmerize your dog’s taste buds with this delicious one pot wonder, chicken and brown rice!
1 cup brown rice
2 cups water
1/2 lb. green beans, broken into segments
1 medium sweet potato, raw, cut into medium-sized chunks (leave skin on)
3 carrots, sliced into about 1″ thick rounds
2 boneless chicken breasts (with or without skin)
1. Put all ingredients into the crockpot in the order given (layer, don’t mix).
2. Cook on low for about 8 hours, on high for about 5 hours.
3. When done, stir, breaking up the chicken into small pieces. Everything will be quite soft.
4. Let cool and serve; can be used with a quality kibble or by itself, in a serving size appropriate for your dog’s weight and activity level.
Refrigerate unused portion; keeps up to three days.
Substitutions are allowed! For vegetables, try broccoli florets, zucchini, spinach or any of several types of squash. For the protein source, beef cubes, turkey or lamb also work. Use organic ingredients if possible.
If you don’t have a crock pot no problem, just use a large pot and cook dish low on stove top.
